    by the way, I have to go on about Wizards of Ooze a bit, because I invariably tie their music to playing Gloom, the Q2 mod. Especially that tune I put up.

    Also, much like your contribution, nick.

    Where does this random collection of music come from? Is this the kind of music you guys listen to? Just goes to show how different tastes in music can be.

    I'll chip in with some sweet old swinging or jamming tunes from the thirties too, if you want. That's my poison of choice.

    Or why not this disco classic! Perfect for us purple disco space giraffes:

    Well I used to make a lot of compilations for private use, but this is what I want to set vanu to, not the boring old UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ or fucking metal or whatever those TR & NC bastards use.

    I love music. Therefor i listen to lots of it, of all different genres. It's how i've been brought up i guess. I think it's pointless to close yourself off from different things.

    Just to say, not everyone will have access to Spotify, Esoteric. Best off looking for links to youtube if possilbe? I no longer have Spotify, though it is good.

    I hear that. And thanks for the funky links in here, especially alan tew, it hit a spot! Personally I've been a bit of a metalhead since what seems like forever, but I always appreciate artistry and lately I find my tastes to just increase in diversity but also get more and more critical in terms of quality. So long as the tune grips me and makes me feel something, that's the important part.

    One band I really enjoy that might be in the vein of this thread might be Soil & Pimp Sessions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axzOcH9KhN0

    Also, Bohren is something I enjoy a whole lot when farting around at night irl so it might work when flying a gal during the night phase http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axzOcH9KhN0

    I really liked that. Before I got a look at the guys my first thought was it sounds Japanese somehow. It's got that quality where the genre is perfectly observed and performed, yet by people who aren't actually an authentic part of it's culture. Adds an edge you don't often get.

    I know that probably doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement, but seriously I liked it a lot. Much like I like it when the Japanese play at being The Pogues.

    Ok, some of the more electronically minded bits of my library that feel fairly vanu to me.

    Sisters of Transistors - The Don

    Apoptygma Berzerk - Kathy's Song

    If we're talking about film/game-style of music I really really like this one from Mass Effect 3:
    Clint Mansell and EA Games Soundtrack – Leaving Earth

    Or contintuing on the disco theme; these set the "right feeling", I find:
    Village People – Magic Night (being with friends and having fun)
    Village People – Get Away Holiday (alludes to escapism)
    Gotta love Village People.

    Anyone that doesn't have spotify and likes music should really get it, it's like a tenner a month for all the music ever. That being said I'll contribute in youtube anyway;

    I like Clint Mansell's contributions to ME3 more than Bioware's for sure, but I like his contributions to Moon more;
    Moon OST - Welcome to Lunar Industries

    Also, love Craig Armstrong for cinematic stuff;
    Escape/Hanging - Craig Armstrong
    Ruthless Gravity - Craig Armstrong

    Pretty much everything Beirut has done reminds me of Amerish. No logic behind that, maybe it looks kinda rustic?
    Beirut - Elephant Gun

    Surely any band called Hadouken! is going to pick Vanu? If anyones still actually reading I'm probably going to lose a lot of people here but I don't care, I like trash sometimes!
    Rebirth - Hadouken!

    If anyone actually had families in the PS2 universe, I can see a Vanu teenager getting down to a bit of Anamanaguchi, Souleye or Chipzel;
    Anamanaguchi - Jetpack Blues, Sunset Hues
    Souleye - Potential for Anything
    Chipzel - To The Sky


    Yeah, you Lib pilots could play Ride of the Valkeries, sure. But everyone else is doing that so have some vintage Outkast and stand out from the crowd!
    B.O.B - Outkast

    I'm pretty sure a lot of people already know this and are possibly even sick of it after AssCreed (not really) Revelations relentlessly played it during their ad campagin. However, this is still a powerful song imo and it's easy to see why Ubisoft's marketing department were so hard for it;
    Iron - Woodkid

    Every time we lose a biolab to the TR this plays in my head;
    Take it Back - Enter Shikari/Qemists

    Any amount of intelligent hip hop could be a Vanu national anthem just as much as Daft Punk if you ask me. Some highlights from Talib Kweli;
    Roll off Me - Talib Kweli
    Get By - Talib Kweli
    Definition - Black Star

    Justice are, for my money, one of the most analogue sounding electronic acts this side of Aphex Twin, at least on their first album. More importantly, that first album is essentially one big tribute to disco;
    Genesis - Justice
    Planisphere - Justice
    Audio, Video, Disco - Justice

    Jesus, I was only going to post like 3 things. This is addictive. I need to start doing more productive things with my days off work.

    That is a bloody shout and a half Jag. Justice completely slipped my mind. Absolute belters there pal.

    Well, when I think Vanu I think space. And aliens.

    It turns out there is a night in Bristol called Giraffe Boogie. Rather pleasingly, they play electro, funk and disco, eg:

    Yeah, they've got a certain something that feels quite unique. And that's something I appreciate almost more than anything in music. Glad you liked it!

    Indeed. The power of the Japanese has always been great.
